The Bavarian Inn Restaurant will begin reopening its dining facilities Wednesday, June 3, following an announcement from the State of Michigan temporarily suspending certain COVID-19 emergency orders for Saginaw County.
Under guidance from the state, restaurants in the county like the Bavarian Inn will be allowed to serve guests, including those without access to personal food preparation due to flooding, as long as appropriate precautions are taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19. State guidelines for maintaining 50% indoor capacity, conducting employee health checks and other requirements will be followed to the full extent.
The Bavarian Inn Restaurant’s plan includes opening up its main dining room areas beginning on June 3, as well as the patio on Main Street and offering full retail options in the Castle Shops. The temporary hours of operation will be from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily for both dining and retail.
Takeout and curbside pickup will continue to be available as well.
As part of the reopening the plan includes key measures to ensure a safe dining experience. These include changes to the dining room physical layouts to ensure appropriate distancing between parties, the use of disposable menus (or access to a QR code) and hand sanitizer dispensers throughout high traffic areas.
Face coverings will be required for all Bavarian Inn employees, who will also undergo daily wellness checks.
Restaurant guests are being asked to wear a face covering at all times while inside the building until seated at a table, and to practice frequent hand washing and sanitizing as well as practicing six-foot social distancing with anyone outside of their household.
While not required, reservations to dine are being highly encouraged by the Bavarian Inn team. To make a reservation or place a carryout order call (989) 652-9941 or 1-800-BAVARIA.
